Having visited Nendaz in the Summer we were amazed at how beautiful the area is . It is renowned for its apricots, raspberries as well as other fruit and it a major wine producing area as well.
Paul & I returned to Nendaz in the winter and fell in love with the vast ski area and also how friendly the village is. We then decided to buy a plot of land and build our lovely chalet!
Paul Holroyd purchased this chalet in 2007
Maretse is in a prime position close to ski lift, bars, restaurants and shops yet in a private road. The chalet has a large garden and sunny patio area with a hot tub that has stunning mountain views and is quite private.
The village has won awards for being 'Family Friendly' and in the Summer there are lovely walks next to the Bisses.
In Winter the 4 valleys ski area is very extensive and suitable for all levels. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have a lovely chalet in this area.
We have stunning mountain views, beautiful comfortable furnishings within the chalet, and the Chalet is only 5 minutes walk to main facililities.
There is parking for 2 cars on the property and a large garage. A large patio area and attractive garden with stunning hot tub that has spectacular mountain views, & to enjoy the sunny position we have garden table/chairs/parasol and gas barbeque.
Each of the 5 bedrooms have their own bathroom.
The large open plan lounge/dining room has a very attractive log fire, comfortable leather settees and there is underfloor heating throughout the chalet making it very cosy and warm in the winter.
We have many compliments on the very well equipped kitchen & the comfort of this luxury chalet that is prepared ready for your arrival with care.
Dear Mary & Paul,
We have enjoyed our stay in your beautiful chalet very much. We felt welcome and the house was indeed comfortable.
We stayed in Maretse for eight weeks, from mid-August to mid-October, 2016. We found all of the descriptions to be very accurate. The chalet was very clean (Thanks, Irene!); the kitchen well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Plenty of wood for the fireplace. Most important was the terrific support and helpfulness of the owners, Paul and Mary!!👏
Nendaz was well located where we were able to drive over 10,000km and see every significant site within a two hour drive. We would highly recommend Maretse!😍
We arrived at the Chalet late in the evening after a rather heavy snow. We were worried as to whether or not we could make our way up the road or even find the Chalet given this was our first trip ever to Switzerland and Haute-Nendaz. Well, it could not have been simpler! We easily made it up the road/driveway, immediately gained access and was able to park the car in the garage and unpack in the warmth (oh so wonderful feeling) instead of outside. The Chalet was immaculate, everything in order. The kitchen is very well equipped, so much so that we cooked almost all our meals. It is a very easy walk to the grocery store, boulangerie, ski rentals and the local lift. Good restaurants were also an easy walk into town and there were a large variety of stores to fill your 'shopping' needs.
The thermal heating of the tiled floors made you want to walk around in your bare feet. You could feel the warm the minute you walked in the room, and after a great day on the slopes, it was very welcomed. As was the hot tub! The view is stunning, even at night which is when we used it the most. There were 5 of us and even with all of us in it, there was plenty of room to stretch out.
We highly recommend a trip up to Mont Fort, even if you aren't a skier. The view will take your breath away. As one of my son's stated, 'This is a life changing moment.' Yes it was. We plan to hike there on our next visit which will be this Summer.
Paul and Mary were very quick to reply to our inquiries and we can't wait until the next time.
Extended family of 9 (5 adults and 4 teenagers) just returned from a week skiing over the New Year holiday. Chalet Marts was wonderful – exactly as advertised. We had plenty of space, the property was very clean and the owners, Paul and Mary, were incredibly responsive and helpful. The chalet is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Bedrooms were large and comfortable and radiant floor heating made the house very cozy and warm. The view from the hot tub and the sound of the stream rushing beside it were relaxing after a full day of skiing. I will note, as it has not been mentioned in other reviews, that the last few hundred yards of the road leading to the chalet are very steep so be sure to have the appropriate vehicle and/or tires if visiting in the winter. I will also note that if there is not a great deal of snow (as when we were there) not all runs are open and for us the run connecting Tracouet (the lift in Nendaz) to the rest of the Four Valleys was not open which required us to take a bus to Siviez (15 minutes) to ski anything other than the one run that was open in Nendaz. It is a bit of a schlep with skis and boots to the lift/bus but there are heated ski lockers available for rent at the Tracouet lift station. However, book early during peak times as when we tried to reserve the week before our trip, they were sold out. We took advantage of the bakery delivery, which was a great way to start the day. We also enjoyed the bar tchin-tchin, just down the hill from the chalet, as a nice place for a drink and pizza there was pretty good as well. Finally, I will say that viewing the fireworks all over the mountain and the valley from the balcony of the chalet was a true highlight of our trip.
We (five adults and three kids 0-3 years) spent 5 nights in Maretse in August 2015. We were very satisfied. Booking was uncomplicated. From the beginning, the chalet completely satisfied our expectations, which were based on the description and pictures on HomeAway. It was very well equipped and we really did not miss anything. Everything functioned flawless (including the WiFi and washing maschine). We appreciated the upstairs bedrooms overlooking the Rhone valley, en suite bathrooms (total 5 bathrooms!), warm and spacious architecture (enough room for active kids), completely equipped kitchen, big dining table, the patio with the large garden table and of course the outside whirlpool with mountain views. The chalet is well located - it is quiet and still close enough to the city center. Even though there are several other neighboring chalets, the patio and the outside whirlpool are secluded enough.
We felt ourselves at home and had a carefree vacation in Maretse. We can recommend it without reservations for families with or without friends. From the family point of view, it is a 5 star chalet!
Very nice stay at Chalet Maretse. All aspects in line with description.
Very clean, all needed amenities and equipment available, very practical. Great hot tub with amazing view on the Vallée. Very relaxing on the terrace with the sound of the water (bisse).. Great confort in each room with for each a private bathroom and WC. Close to the shops and lift. Easy access.
No doubt, this is really a good deal. No bad surprises.
Contacts with owner also easy and fast.
Organized visits by the Tourism office were great: visit of the village, visit of the barrage Cleuson. Also, summer activities were great and varied (Festival du cor des Alpes, the market, and others)
We'd love to go back !
Thanks Paul & Mary
Wonderful location. Awesome mountain views. Child friendly. Complete home with all the amenities. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Valias. Games for the children. Hot tub and patio with superb views.

It is possible to ski right down to the resort during the entire season.
Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon, Mont Fort and Verbier are all areas to ski.
At the highest point of the '4 Vallees' at 3300m, the Mont Fort area is a location of nature & freedom, where free-riders meet powder snow. It has exceptional panoramic views and is also a great excursion for non-skiers. Ski School is conveniently at the top of the ski lift at Tracouet.

During summer, Haute Nendaz is popular for walking especially along the Bisses which are the old medieval streams for irrigation. Hiking, mountain biking, golfing, skate-boarding, rock climbing, etc. are all very popular. Many of the ski lifts are open in Summer and bikes can be taken on the lifts free between June - September.
There is an outdoor swimming pool in Nendaz, and beautiful spa and pool at the local luxury hotel as well as the spa pools and baths at Saillon.
